CA: Fiorina Calls Anti-Marriage Equality Position “Consistent With Our President”

Written by scott on September 2nd, 2010

The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in California on Wednesday invoked President Obama’s opposition to same-sex marriage while explaining her position against marriage rights for gay couples.

Carly Fiorina, who’s seeking to unseat U.S. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), said during a debate she believes marriage is between one man and one woman and expressed support for civil unions.

“And actually, the position I’ve consistently espoused is consistent with that of our president and a vast majority of senators in the U.S. Senate,” she said.

    Correction regarding The President being against Same Sex Marriage. He did say personally he felt that marriage should be between one man and one woman. However…it is important to know that he also was against Prop 8 because he supports civil rights. You never hear that second part from those looking for support on of Prop 8. The California Supreme Court and a Federal Judge agree that it is unconstitutional. One more correction is that California and most of the USA now supports Marriage Equality including The Senate. Each year brings more support for equality as younger voters come into the voting pool and the older crowd drop away. CNN had a recent poll which shows a majority overall in the USA supports same sex marriage. In 2012 it will be back up for vote in California and it will pass this time by a majority.

    I agree, but also think Obama is doing no one (including the democratic party) any favors by holding the line on the states’ rights/1 man 1 woman thing. It’s hugely demoralizing to the lbgt base of the democratic party, and will hurt turnout in November. I tell everyone – you still gotta vote – but the enthusiasm gap is hard to overcome…
